If the colors are not right and you didn't personally change the colors on the monitor, then there could be something wrong with either the graphics card or the monitor.

Test this by trying the monitor on another computer. If the colors are still 'weird' then it's the monitor.

Is the Acer monitor still under warranty?

Color changes

1) The display settings on the monitor have changed. Check and/or adapt the settings using the buttons on the monitor. You might wanna try 'reset to default/factory settings'.

2) The computer display settings have changed. Check and/or adapt the settings on the computer, especially scan the 'advanced' menus for keywords like 'contrast', 'brightness', 'gamma'. Or hook up another computer to rule it out for sure.
3) The inverter in the monitor is broken. This is not uncommon and mostly due to filter caps gone bad (capacitors with a bulging on top).
4) One of the backlights in the monitor is broken. This would result in parts/half the screen being much dimmer than the others/half.

LCD Monitors wear in light intensity over time, but when it happened suddenly and very noticeable (and you doublechecked case 1 and 2), it's probably the inverter, as it matches your description (although usually in the end you're only left with a black 'light').

Hopefully you still have warranty so you can get it fixed. If not, a complete inverter replacement can be quite expensive and you're better of buying a new monitor. But when it's only faulty caps, which is not unlikely, it's an easy and quick fix for any electrotechnician, replacement caps are just a couple of bucks. You could have someone or some local repairshop check it out first if you like, could be a cheap fix ...

Unplug your TV for a while and see fi you are getting the same issues after you plug it in. If it works after, then you have an overheating issue with the power supply or main board.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Dell M922 monitor problem

To change the resolution back to something more reasonable go to the control panel (start, settings, control panel) and double left click on the Display icon. Click on the settings tab. The color quality should be set a high as possible, usually 32 bit or true color. Then click on the Advanced button in the lower right corner and on the next screen click on the Monitor tab. In the Monitor settings make sure the Screen refresh rate is set between 70 and 75 Hertz (the higher the number the less obvious the screen flicker will be but don?t set any higher). Click on the OK button to go back to the previous screen. Once that is set you want to increase the Screen Resolution using the slider bar to the left. For a 19? screen you would want to set it to a minimum of at least 1024 x 768. The typical setting is 1280 x 1024 depending on monitor / video card capabilities and personal tastes. Once you get the resolution back to the original settings your screen will display as it did before the ?change?. If you find another resolution setting you like better we?ll need to make some adjustments to the monitor itself. Just let us know. Ordinarily screen resolution changes doesn?t just happen, it?s usually the result of a program, user or problem. If that is the case you?ll need to post anther question along with details about what is happening just before the change occurs along with your operating system and any other pertinent information.
